“A knockout location for a group of friends”
Reviewed 25 June 2012 for a stay in September 2011

Our group of 8 (4 couples) stayed for a week for a mixed holiday of beaches, golf, restaurants and lazing by the pool. The villa was tremendous in terms of comfort and location. The pool area was perfect - the summer kitchen even had air con and a TV! Howard made sure that everything ran like clockwork. I will definitely be coming again.

“Amazing Villa...Amazing Holiday”
Reviewed 24 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed at Casa Grand with our family, ranging from 15 months to 60+. The villa was amazing with everything we could have possibly ask for. Having 6 children (4 who are 4 and under) between us, it was brilliant that the villa is totally child friendly with so much to entertain the kids! The villa is of an excellent standard and totally spotless...until we arrived! Howard and Victoria were brilliant and extremely helpful. The pool area, gardens and jacuzzi were all excellent as was the outdoor eating area and kitchen. The beer kegs were a great idea! I would not hesitate to recommend the villa to anyone and hope to return in the not so distant future. A real find!!

“Casa Grande = Perfection”
Reviewed 17 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Firstly, I am not entirely sure I should be writing this review, uncovering a hidden gem is going to blow my chances of a future visit!
Casa Grande sits outside the picturesque village of Porches with great access to beaches, shops, restaurants and attractions. But quite frankly you could walk into the Villa with enough food and drink for a month and never want to leave. The Villa caters for all ages and has outstanding safety features for both babies and toddlers, this was the main reason we chose to stay there the first time.
Both the owners and cleaner always find the correct balance throughout our stay, never being obtrusive but always availible and contactable to provide advice for local amenities.
This was our 3rd stay at this property and each year there always seems to be surprises with added features and improved facilities. The new playarea, trampoline and hottub were brilliant additions for 2012. Each year gets better and better, we are looking forward to planning our next trip to Casa Grande.
